National coordinators of the Global Education Network, representing CSO platforms, education and governmental institutions, from 24 countries, gathered in Lisbon to share experiences and practices on issues related to Global Education advocacy, partnerships, outreach and funding.
Based on the recommendations of the last network meeting (Colares, Portugal, 2017) and building on the 2018 progress assessment through the regular consultation with the stakeholders, the network coordinators concurred to set up three task forces to cover the three areas - advocacy, partnerships and outreach - by contributing to the implementation of a series of pilot actions in the medium-term, in line with the priorities that were identified in the reflection work that led to the creation of the task forces. These taksforces, that will meet with a periodicity of every three months, will allow a greater involvement of the GE network coordinators throughout the year.
The meeting was also an opportunity to choose the theme for the Global Education week 2019 edition. The theme voted for 2019 is climate change and the proposed motto is: Wake Up! This is the final call for climate.
